Monk, Thelonius – 5 by Monk by 5 
Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
The Five Spot residency ended Christmas 1957, Coltrane left to rejoin Miles Davis's group, and the band was effectively disbanded. Monk did not form another long-term band until June 1958, when he began a second residency at the Five Spot, again with a quartet, this time with Griffin (and later Charlie Rouse) on tenor, Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums.
The studio album 5 by Monk by 5 was released in June 1959.
